General[edit | edit source]
Thermic Disruptor is a special for Blight Cannon weapons, boosting range as well as shield damage, much like the Ionized Optics.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Thermic Disruptor increases the damage dealt towards shields, thus boosting the weapon's effectiveness against shielded targets, especially Altairian Hulls, by a large amount.
It also grants additional range, giving the weapon greater reach, and allowing ships armed with this weapon to attack from a further distance as well.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Thermic Disruptor however takes up a decent amount of ship mass as compared to other specials before it.
The Buffs provided by the Thermic Disruptor are not as potent compared to other specials (For Example, Beam Capacitor provides much better range, allowing the standard energy versions of weapons to reach much further than the blight version, and Ion Modulator provides much better shield damage]]), making using the blight version not as appealing as compared to the standard version.
Also, only Umbra Hulls are able to equip this special.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This special is basically Ionized Optics, except it only affects Blight Cannon weapons. Surprisingly, its buffs aren't as potent as well, most likely because Blight damage can only be resisted by Umbra Hulls.
- This special has been locked to Tier 7 ships in the early November 2019 update. Any Valrayvns equipped with this special at the time enjoy one free refit until the ship has been upgraded.
